The Infrared Light Sensor is sensitive in the infrared portion (up to 40,000 nm) of the spectrum, but can also detect visible spectrum. It can detect the radiation from a person’s hand. The response is linear over its entire frequency range.
- Measure intensity in Watts/Meter2 (W/m2).
- Built-in thermistor to measure temperatures of the “cold” side of the thermopile in °C, °F or K.
- Measure black body radiance
- Perform Leslie’s Cube experiments
- Measure solar radiance
- Evaluate heat flow into or out of the sensor
- Simulate a non-contact temperature sensor
- 1x Shutter with thumbscrew and washer
